A story that gained national attention turns out to be much ado about nothing.
First Christian Church in Sullivan lent its room to a group of people Sunday.
That small group talked about having separate proms for straight and gay students of Sullivan High School
First Christian Church in Sullivan said that it doesn't promote any political or social agenda and the group was a small faction within the church.
The school has also taken a stance that it does not and will not discriminate and has taken no stance against a person's sexual preference or orientation.
All of this came about because two girls wanted to attend the school's prom together.
The school says that it will not be banning anyone from attending the April 27th prom.
Everyone is invited.
The group that wanted to explore alternative prom options can of course continue to plan a private party if they chose.
As a footnote, a special education teacher at another school has been interviewed and quoted in other media.
Diana Medley, works at nearby North Central Jr./Sr. High School in the Northeast School Corporation. She has voice her objections to gays and has been quoted as saying that she doesn’t understand them.
The prom talked about here is at Sullivan High School which is part of Southwest Sullivan Schools and not Medley’s school or Northeast Sullivan Schools.
